We booked this motel for 5 days after visiting the area the previous month. It's got a fantastic location minutes away from the 3 Sisters. While the motel is a bit dated, all we were looking for was a clean and comfortable room which it provided. The maid staff could have provided replacement shampoo on a daily basis and not... More

We booked on line and booked this motel because of price it seemed very good value for money, it was. If you are doing the touristy blue mountain experience and on a budget you cannot go wrong going there. When you arrive you are processed quickly and given a quick rundown on what where and how ( well worth it).... More

I booked a two night deal through Groupon for $175 advertised as up to $336 value for two people in a queen room. Our room had a queen bed but also another two single beds. The room and small bathroom was very dated, probably 1970s style and seriously crying out for a modernisation. The room and bedding appeared clean. Having... More

Room was nice. Stall was really friendly and even dropped me to the train station when I couldn't get a taxi. Three sisters lookout is about 3 min walk down a hill (not too steep) Go during the day , but make sure you go back at night as it's all lit up with flood lights looks really nice

Stayed on a Saturday for one night last minute. I was very lucky to be offered a cancelled room. I was surprised to discover that the Blue Mountains is so booked out on weekends! and the accommodation is not cheap! But this motel was budget pricing and value for money. The reception staff had great advice for me to tour... More

Very close to The Three Sisters attraction, within walking distance. Wifi at $5 dollars per day. Restaurant open for breakfast $7. A very helpful gentleman on reception giving advice regarding attractions. It's budget accommodation although dated but clean and comfortable.

Unlike many hotels in the area (and in Australia in general), this hotel is reasonably priced. Just that, by itself, is a good reason to stay here. It's a reasonable stay for a decent price. The older gentleman at the front desk when I checked in was very helpful. He took the time to show me sights on a map,... More

After looking for hours for motel in blue mountains, we managed to get the last room in echo point. Our host was very helpful and answered all our queries even though it was close to midnight. Our stay was very comfortable, with the rooms being very neat and clean. Short walk to the 3 sisters is added bonus as we... More

Stayed two days mid week near the end of October, the check in could have been better with the girl at reception falling well short of her duties by omitting the extras in our package,but everything was rectified the following morning by the gentleman on reception.People say the rooms are dated, but that's in keeping with the location, its budget...

Great location right alongside 3 Sisters Echo Point. Great bed, but never managed to get the toilet to flush completely - a little disconcerting. Also the floor was not level, and as we were in the end unit, a little noisy. Traditional Aussie motel.
